Today started off great. My Green Bottle Blue molted and is now 1.25 inch. I was so pleased, and happy as this is the first molt she had with me.
Then this evening my B. emilia molts while I'm out, only I come home to the serious death roll. She was about 1.25 inch and just beautiful. Starting to get her colors and all.
I looked at the exuvia and its perfect. No snags or rough areas. Looks like a perfect molt. I'm just not sure why she curled up.
She still has a tiny bit of life left, but I've seen this before with my first A. geniculata. Once it curled, it didn't uncurl.
I tried to give her some water, but no response.
I am really bummed and I will really miss her. They are one of my favorite species.

Strange but, that's when my emilia died...:?

Peace,

Its a miracle!

I checked on Hush this morning and she was still alive! She's uncurled mostly and has moved around some.
This is excellent as my daughter was especially upset that Hush didn't look like she was going to make it. She was in tears last night and said a special prayer that Hush would make it.
She was thrilled to see that Hush had made it!
I'm extremely happy as well!:)
